Cannon, armour, animals, and pavilions are great, but it is the re-enactors who truly bring the Middle Ages to life each year at the Abbey Medieval Festival!

Some forty re-enactment groups from around the country will attend this year’s event. These groups are dedicated to re-enacting medieval life from Europe and the Near East from 600-1600AD.

These groups commit many hours to ensure the quality and authenticity of their presentation and performance at the Abbey Medieval Festival. Visitors to the encampments will see history come alive as re-enactors portray life, arts, and traditions of the Middle Ages.

We are proud to be among Australia’s best re-enactment events.
